Editing notes:
* A 16.4-second station ID was removed at 4:34 into Track 2;
* A 0.23-second broadcast dropout at 4:48 into Track 3 was repaired with splices from identical passages nearby;
* A 15-second station ID was left intact but reduced in volume at 2-1/2 seconds into Track 4;
* A 0.03-second broadcast dropout at 3:45 into Track 7 was repaired with clones from a similar passage;
* A 90-second station ID was removed at 7:03 into Track 7;
* A 1.1-second broadcast dropout at 4:33 into Track 8 could not be repaired so it was removed. There's an obvious jump/skip in time;
* A -30db notch filter was used to remove the 19kHz FM pilot tone; and
* The entire recording was normalized by 1.95 db.
